McALLEN, Texas — Foot Solutions is helping Valley doctors by making face shields.
The owner, Barry Franklin, says he reaches out to doctors to see how many they need and then makes them.
The company has a 3-D printer that had not been used since the shelter-in-place orders were issued.
Franklin now has found a way to put it to good use.
“A lot of them are going to doctors and hospitals and stuff like that. trying to take care of those. A lot of them are also doctors who refer people to me and knew I had the capability, so they started asking,” said Franklin.
He adds the doctors deserve it as they are performing an essential job for the well-being of the community.
